A lot of people who are religious, I think they get lost. They go to church just to go to church.

Lake Mojave

Today we spent about four hours on a boat out on Lake Mojave.

I can’t perfectly remember the last time I was so relaxed for such an extended period of time. Maybe when I was meditating every day back in January or well that’s it. It was so refreshing to just lay down in the sun and breathe.

I feel like I don’t do it enough. Breathing in and out and focusing only on that. I feel like it’s such an unappreciated combination of art and therapy. And today I painted a masterpiece with my breaths.

Road Trips

One of my favorite things in the world is just taking a road trip with some cool people and that’s what I did today. My aunt, uncle, three cousins, and I drove from San Diego (where I live) all the way over to Laughlin, Nevada for some TLC on the river in a nice, yet inexpensive hotel.

The six hour drive honestly wasn’t all that bad. My cousin has a mobile hotspot so I got to sit and play on my computer or read Sense and Sensibilityor listen to some music or talk to my cousins or whatever. It was so incredibly laid back and an easy drive.

As for Laughlin itself, it’s not a bad place, but I’m honestly here mostly to get away from my immediate family. I love my parents, but it’s hard to be around them when Hannah isn’t home.

I think anybody who falls in love is a freak. It’s a crazy thing to do. It’s kinda like a socially acceptable insanity.


Timing is life.”

-A little boy during a beginner guitar class at my music school


Timing is everything. Music, plans, days, relationships, friendships? All boil down to the right timing and often times sitting around and waiting for the right time to come. 

I suppose I’m slowly learning patience more and more everyday; I just wish I didn’t have to.

Waking Up Early

I hate every second of it and I’m about to pass about from the combination of caffeine deprivation and a migraine. Goodnight my No One. I hope you had a splendid day.
